NAME ^

Text::NSP::Measures::3D::MI::pmi - Perl module that implements Pointwise Mutual Information for trigrams.

SYNOPSIS ^

Basic Usage

  use Text::NSP::Measures::3D::MI::pmi;

  $pmi_value = calculateStatistic( n111=>10,
                                  n1pp=>40,
                                  np1p=>45,
                                  npp1=>42,
                                  n11p=>20,
                                  n1p1=>23,
                                  np11=>21,
                                  nppp=>100);

  if( ($errorCode = getErrorCode()))
  {
    print STDERR $erroCode." - ".getErrorMessage()."\n";
  }
  else
  {
    print getStatisticName."value for bigram is ".$pmi_value."\n";
  }

DESCRIPTION ^

The expected values for the internal cells are calculated by taking the product of their associated marginals and dividing by the sample size, for example:

            n1pp * np1p * npp1
   m111=   --------------------
              nppp * nppp

Pointwise Mutual Information (pmi) is defined as the log of the devitation between the observed frequency of a trigram (n111) and the probability of that trigram if it were independent (m111).

 PMI =   log (n111/m111)

Methods

initializeStatistic() -Initialization of the pmi_exp parameter if required

INPUT PARAMS : none

RETURN VALUES : none

calculateStatistic() - This method calculates the pmi value

INPUT PARAMS : $count_values .. Reference of a hash containing the count values computed by the count.pl program.

RETURN VALUES : $pmi .. PMI value for this trigram.

getStatisticName() - Returns the name of this statistic

INPUT PARAMS : none

RETURN VALUES : $name .. Name of the measure.
